Fuming is the traditional way of finishing Stickley furniture. The trick to fuming is to build a frame and cover with plastic outdoors. The fuming chamber/tent shouldn’t be much larger than the project and should be air tight. most people will cut a slit in the side at the bottom to place the ammonia in. Note household ammonia won’t work you need to get it from a wood store that sells finishes. If you goggle fuming you can learn more about the process.
